I got my copy of Silius with double dragon for $5.50. So I got my copy for $2.75. (Yes, on eBay.)

@SuperToad
Ah, didn't think of that. Thought I was set with Smash Bros. And Goldeneye. Thanks, I may look for a copy later.

I found a Limited Edition Toys R Us N64 in the box along with Tetris, Donkey Kong Land III, and Pokémon Yellow, all in amazing condition.

For five dollars. I are basking in my win! :)

I couldn't resist completing my NES Ninja Gaiden collection.

So much people like to downplay Gaiden III because it feels like a bit of a departure gameplay wise when compared to I and II, plus it's much harder and then there's the limited continue scenario plus the soundtrack isn't quite up to awesomeness as the first 2 either. :p But i had a fantastic time with this one, and it will completely put you on your toes 2x if not more than the first 2. Ryu's jumping is floatier and now you can actually climb up the walls instead of the constant left to right wall jumping, which may go either way for most people. :p

Anyways! RadicalRyno if you can beat NGIII you are a TRUE Ninja princess indeed! :D I've beaten it, and it was one of the greatest(If not thee', as of late)NES victory for me ever. :o The most intense Final boss battle ever, i was literally dripping with gaiden sweat, to the point where my controller was about to fly off my hands like a gooey Michaelangelo Nun chuck! Ok maybe not, but holy hell what a victory! :D

But yup! Awesome buy! I only have the first Ninja Gaiden in Cartridge form. But What I'm craven right now even though i don't exactly have the space cash is Little Nemo the Dream Master CIB hehe.

an intense overhead shooter with bizarre music for the Sega Genny.
great cutscenes as well
i would suggest anyone with a Genesis to get this game.
i used to rent it back in the day and got tired of thinking about it.
this is another OGO recommend!

Well, if the Duke of Retroland, OGO himself recommends this its must be good! I am trying to put off my Genesis collecting until down the road but somehow Ryno Ryan’s Genesis wish list keeps on growing!

KingMike wrote:

Why have I unintentionally bought "scary" games lately? After getting Porky as mentioned, I also ordered Haunting Starring Polterguy for Genesis (complete ex-rental copy) and Gremlins 2 for NES. And also Journey to Silius, which as we know was originally going to be a Terminator game. Both NES games loose. Is it just me or has Silius' value gone up a bit lately. Sure I could've easily gotten that for a few bucks last year but didn't. Now it's over $10.

@KingMike: You love your kiddy classics huh? :P Haunting Starring Polterguy, never heard of it but looked into it a little bit and it looks like a fun little game. I definitely want Gremlins 2 for the NES, I loved that cute fuzzy furball Gizmo during the 80’s. I remember that the music to level 1 was great and I am sure the otherr levels music was as well. Sunsoft was definitely right right along Nintendo, Konami, and Capcom as some of the best 8-bit music masters as demonstrated in their games like Gremlins 2, Blaster Master, Journey to Silius, and Batman.

Silius value has gone up lately I have noticed. In fact I think a lot of retro games are going up in crazy prices. Now is a popular time to collect retro games. I watched this complete mint condition copy of Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest (black seal and all inserts included) go for $103 kid you not! During the same time I saw a copy of Metroid (silver copy but manual cover was beat up and was not a 5-screw or hang tab box) go over $132.00! Krazy with a K times indeed.

@WaveBoy: Cap’N and the Game Master was such an incredible show. It is right up there with Steamboat Willie in terms of classics in my expert opinion. :p Oh and play Super Metroid otherwise the spirit of Halloween is going to leave you with only tricks and no treats!

In Ninja Gaiden II can you climb up the walls as well? Cannot remember as I only really just tried the Game Pak out when I got it to make sure it worked.

Confession time, I have yet to beat #1 because I cannot get past THE spot (1:05 in the video) on 6-2. I am tempted to download it on VC so I can just Suspend myself at that level so I can then just pick it up and play from there.

So yeah I don’t know when I will take on III or II. I feel like I have pass the first, to graduate and move on. Oh well at least the three will look good in my collection until I finally get around to them. :D

Definitely highest of Ninja honors to you for defeating the Ancient Ship of Doom. There probably are not too many people out there that can claim that! Maybe just you and Master Splinter actually...

So you are Wes Craven some Little Nemo huh? I never played that but it does look like another Capcom Master hit! Anytime a game has Master its a sure fiire can't-miss type of game. Man that Capcom Craze Club was really really crazy rollin’ during ‘88-92. B-)

I haven't played it much yet. I'll probably play more when I'm done with ALTTP. I've only played 2 levels of Silius though and I love it! The music is definitely amazing. The controls are tight and the challenge is fun.

Well, I just watched some youtube video of Porky, and was like "wow, that's creepier than I'd have expected." Since it was only a few bucks, I figured why not.
I also got an SNES game lot specifically for Earthworm Jim. Good game, though I think when I played it as a kid I think I got stuck at the sub level.
I guess along that same line, I got another game with a much more narrowly focused sense of humer... BOOGER!!
I know the Genesis version is available on VC (and the actual Genesis cart can be had for about the same price), but I recall the SNES version was a little different game, and I need my nostalgia feeling to get kicked in the face (even if that means paying the higher price the SNES commands, which seems to be about $20 on the low end).
(oh yes... my nostalgia was beaten when I last played Bugs Bunny Rabbit Rampage. Kinda frustrating, I guess I somehow enjoyed it as a kid or because I was too impressed with the graphics and animation, which I recall were fairly good when it was released. Or because I really wanted to play Bugs.)

I just got this one today. Though there are probably more copies of this NES game in the world than any other the nice added touch with this in particular is the inclusion of the Super Mario Bros. 3 poster/game advertisement.

A standard grey Nintendo 64(free, no cords, expansion pack), a clear purple N64 controller (free, stick was broken, but fixed it), and an N64 AC adapter ($5). And I'm probably going to get some games soon, most likely GoldenEye and stuff.

@Ryno Brings back memories of the time I tried in vain to get that game to play on my less than responsive NES. Good thing I've fixed it since then...I would've missed out on so many games!

I just recently got this nice little bomb diggity piece for the old NES collection. Never played a Bomberman before though. The cover looks pretty rad, "Bomb!"

Awesome, CIB too. I was thinking of getting that but I'd rather have Super Bomberman. Bomberman is mainly multiplayer and it's really great. I don't know how much you'll enjoy it on your own though.
